East Lothian Council have extended the consultation period until 30 April 2018 following a request from members of the community.

Take this opportunity and have your say!

**********

Haddington and Lammermuir Area Partnership has been working with East Lothian Council and local community partners to identify a suitable location in Haddington for a community shelter.

This has arisen following a request from young people for a place where they could meet to socialise in Haddington and was first raised when the Area Partnership began developing their Area Plan in 2014. The request was duly noted as a potential outcome in the Area Plan and then gained further momentum during the construction of the skatepark on Whittingehame Drive in 2016.

In early 2017, a survey of some local young people was carried out which identified the area around Tynebank Road, Haddington as being their preferred location. East Lothian Council have also agreed that this is their preferred location for a shelter. The Area Partnership has previously supported the design, build and installation of a shelter in Garvald  and has already committed funding to install a similar shelter in Haddington.

A consultation seeking views on this proposed location has now begun. For more details, and to take complete the online survey. Alternatively please email your comments to Haddington and Lammermuir Area Partnership at handl-ap@eastlothian.gov.uk by no later than Friday 9 March 2018.
